The State of Febuary is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.205 billion Febuaryians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Febuaryian economy, worth 50.5 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,505 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Governor has just been declared ruler of Febuary in an international press conference, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Febuary's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Febuary is ranked 9,327th in the world and 1st in Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic for Most Stationary, with 1,775.42488456068 Days.
